7:34 am
operation urban shield based in oakland because well, it is meant to protect and prepare the event garnered criticism. it shows off the latest policing tools and gives law enforcement a chance to train for all sorts of disaster scenarios but the mayor of oakland says between the protests and strain on the department it is just not worth it and the city will not seek a contract for next year. >> when urban shield happens a lot of protestors come from all over, and it is a burden on the city and having to take a lot of police officers out of the community to cover events like this is probably not worth it for us. >> alameda county hosted it for the last eight years and it has been held in oakland for the last two years. of course, the sheriff's department of alameda county says this is a training operation meant to do good for us ultimately and get people ready for you know the worst, terrorist attacks, you know,
7:35 am
anything. >> right but it is the congregation of the convention like atmosphere and trade show that accompanies it that upset mayor kwan and the protestors who say it represents mill tarrization of local police departments but the mayor doesn't have a lot to say about this this is a county event done by the sheriff it is not done on city property she can participate or can't and they can move it but it is an election year and some of her opponents are opposed to urban shield so that might be in play as well. >> mill tarrization is the big buzz word but it may be a vocal my torety really against training when it comes to this. we are talking all sorts of first responders doctors to firefighters getting trained this weekend. >> also interesting to note the mayor isn't talking about having the sheriff's department not patrol the streets of oakland which they have been doing the last couple years to help out. >> all nevada needs now to approve an incentive package as
7:36 am
it will become the home of tesla's factory. >> that $5 billion factory that would go into a reno suburb california wanted it but nevada won out with an incentive package including various tax breaks totals up to $1.3 billion over the next 20 years. tesla ceo says it is important for his company and unlike any other in the world. >> the factory is really vital for the future of tesla in order to produce this mass market affordable electric car it is not just it will be the biggest battery factory in the world but the sum of all lithium iron factorys in the world. >> the governor says despite incentives and tax breaks it could generate tens of billions in renne view. >> this is a -- revenue. >> this is a embarrassment locally >> one those
7:37 am
batteries, some will go to fremont to the tesla factory this was an expensive factory a lot of upfront tax breaks for them to do this and second of all they wanted that thing built fast within the next couple years and california's environmental regulations are stiff and he couldn't get exemptions he wanted. governor confirmed it during last week's debate saying he intends to sign the bill any day now. paper bags will cost 10¢ each. plastic bag manufacturers will get $2 million to help them come up with a plan to make a heavier duty bag growers can sell. brown has until september 28th to sign that bill into law this would be the first in the country it is good to get rid of the piece meal approach, individual counties and cities have their own bans now it will
7:38 am
be a standard thing across the state. >> the governor will sign that there was last minute negotiations between various parties involved in the bag debate itself but rather union talks about merging of large super market chains which shows you, a lot of times it is the bag or what goes into the bag that winds up getting attention of sacramento. >> meanwhile a lot of websites are vowing to slow down this wednesday, the approach is to encourage the fcc to protect net neutrality the site that will be promoting the all day action, net neutrality means internet providers and governments treat all data on the internet equally in other words they don't discriminate or charge differently by the user of the content, platform or the site. several popular websites are participating in the slow down when you log on you will see this spinning wheel to symbolize what they say searching the web could look like without net neutrality the fcc is expecting to issue a final rule as soon as the end
7:39 am
of the year. >> another buzz phrase i didn't know what it meant because i heard about it but not really kind of soaked it in but basically it means it is like a fast lane and a slow lane for internet meaning if you pay you could get in the fast lane and the rest of us who are not interested in paying would be stuck in the slow lane. >> like driving on the highway. >> i know. local school district that had a history of struggles the new superintendent how he plans to get things on the right path. chefs are leaving san francisco why many say they simply cannot stay in town we will be right back ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

7:42 am
school graduation rate that stands at 63%. >> that doesn't include all the politics that go with schools in california, but he has some big priorities and he has been joining us but i have to ask you out of the gate what made you come to oakland. >> to put it briefly, it is oakland students. >> it is a troubled school district as well it has a lot of problems of its own but a lot that reflect education in the state of california what do you see as the challenge. >> we need to make sure everyone of our students attends a great school. >> but you have been closing schools in oakland cha is a controversy. >> again i think we need to keep the focus on quality,. >> okay but quality is a lofty goal but to achieve it takes a lot of wrangling let's look at some of the hottest issues going on right now one of them is suspensions we have had a lot of criticisms african american youth and other
7:43 am
minority youths are suspended at a higher rate than anyone else. parents are concerned about class safety. >> well, i think we have to always say, safety is number one, we are finding ways to keep our students in school. there are several ways to keep students in school and have safety. >> give an example. >> emphasizing restorative approaches, making students responsible for behaviour. >> but who is going to do that is it going to be the teach inner the classroom. >> this oakland we are working on staff to make sure it is not just the teacher but all adults take responsibility and students themselves. >> when we say take responsibility what do you mean? >> well, i think one it means getting students to understand, how their actions impact other students and while you are doing that making sure they are not disrupting the education
7:44 am
that the teachers are there to provide. >> we will have to see how that one goes. another hot issue right now even in the governor's race, teacher tenure there is criticism, in a suit just brought that said older teachers more experienced teachers are working their way out of the minority schools as a result because of seniority, minority schools heavy schools are getting an inordinant amount of new teachers, inexperienced teachers. >> i support all teaches but don't believe tenure -- teachers but don't believe tenure or years of experience should be used by determining which school students go to or teachers should teach at. >> you don't see it as a gauge for where you go in the district. >> i don't believe it should be at all it should be on what is best for kids and people should be going to schools they believe in the mission and vision and believe in those kids. >> that could put you at odds with the union. >> well, i am here to make a
7:45 am
difference with kids i am looking forward to working with our union on that issue i believe our focus has to be on doing what is best for kids. >> speaking of what is best for kids there is a lot of talk about common core new approach to learning your feelings. >> i believe it is a great opportunity our focus should be on curriculum for all students. >> in oakland one of the biggest tug-of-wars has been the public schools versus charter schools. and there has been an exit of students from oakland public part of it into the charter part. your feelings on that. >> charter schools are public schools. >> right but not under the same administrative wing. >> i would say no. our district authorizes charter schools those are oakland schools, serving oakland students i don't see it that way. what we need to do is make sure our district run schools are thriving and seen as valuable
7:46 am
opportunities for students to learn as well. >> can they coexist. >> absolutely. >> again that will put you at odds with the union >> again i come from a district in denver where we were able the demonstrate you can have both and if we put our focus on supporting teachers and providing quality schools our teachers will find we can do both. >> your first biggest task. only a couple seconds left. big district a lot of different challenges but rewards as well what is the first thing you want to do this year? >> we are focusing on making sure we are doing a better job supporting our people and putting emphasis on college and career readiness. >> what about vocational. >> well, we have a measure in coming in, it will support all opportunity including vocation opportunities for students. >> you already got the pitch in for the tax. thank you for joining us. weather forecast, today, because it is going to be

p.m. it will be free and open to the public. congressman recently traveled to the middle east, meeting with israeli and palestinian leaders. >> he has thoughts on process for peace and threat from isis and neighboring countries. they still hold a large amount of territory. >> that's right and i want to thank you for coming in you just got back let's get right to it. isis who are they? >> this is formerly al qaeda in iraq how it happened i would say the rush to war in iraq in 2003 principally can be blamed for this, but most recently, president malachi in iraq has put his boot on the neck of the suni and isis grew through that and really appealed to disenchanted youth. it grew out of a militant group they brought in youth who want
8:15 am
to be part of the political regime. what happens next is critically important. >> it is not just the youth, in iraq that are involved we have syria and fighters coming in from around the world. england, united states. did the cia see this coming? or it just seems to have blown out highly organized well financed we are acting like we didn't know what was going on. >> i went over to the middle east i am concerned about these fighters coming back to the u.s. they are not just iraqi and syrian fighters joining isis. people from the u.s. hundreds as well as western europe are going over to join this idea, that isis wants to create an islamic state across the middle east. i don't think we saw this coming the way we should have but we need to attack it now look we defeated by in large al qaeda's structure we defeated the leader of al shebab just a
8:16 am
few days ago we are capable of defeating isis but must go and work with partners in the region to make shower they are on the front lines -- make sure they are on the front lines -- >> do you have the feeling they are willing to commit? we hear about the arab league possibly making a statement in saw abort support of our actions but -- support of our actions. >> it can't be solely american blood or money. we can lead a coalition but countries like jordan and egypt they are the ones that face the real threat of their countries being run over by isis. so they have to stand up and put their young men and women on the front lines we can support them with logistics, with air strikes, with supplies but this cannot be a repeat of 2003 the rush to war, bomb first, ask questions later, lead to this situation. we have to learn from that, but i still think we can lead and make sure this does not come to
8:17 am
our shores. >> i want to turn topic we have breaking news out of washington the president says he is going to hold off on any executive orders regarding immigration after the election in part out of fear it could hurt democratics chances in the senate >> i think we need to take action now the president is already being sued by the house republicans. there is an old saying in football when it is coming across the middle for a pass you might as well catch it you are going to get hit any way. take executive action where he can to allow millions of people living in shadows to no longer have to do that but come into our economy and really i think it is the right thing to do. >> let's go back to your football analogy it is an interesting one. i want to ask about the tactics of this. as a quarterback he signaled the past is going. the fact that he hold off
8:18 am
saying this is going to upset people on that side. it is going to happen now or a week after the election. >> when it does happen he is going to get hit. he is going to pay a price from the republicans regardless. he is never going to bring them onboard. democrats are on the right side of the issue. those on the wrong side are going to pay the long term price i would like to see it done now. >> maybe but the signal is, it is going to hurt on the democrat side. >> leadership on this issue and certainty is more important and it is the right thing to do. >> there we have it. thank you for joining us this morning, both sports and politics, back to you. >> now a little weather a live look at the golden gate bridge this morning, where it is mostly cloudy, some peekrays of sunshine but cloudy start, temperatures 50s. mostly cloudy start that will give way to afternoon sun, for the most part of the day today,
